Solomon's Seal. However, instead of having flowers hanging underneath the stem, False Solomon's Seal bears a cluster of flowers at the tip of the stem, more like those of a Canada Mayflower, a flower in the same genus. All of the False Solomon's Seal plants that I saw had already passed the flowering stage and were starting to produce berries. Young berries are green with red stripes or speckles; as the fruits ripen, they will turn deep red.
